All graduate program applicants are required to meet the following academic criteria. Hold a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering OR a bachelor’s degree in another engineering or related field
*Students with engineering degrees in other disciplines typically find it helpful to take 2-3 core undergraduate classes, in addition to those required for an MS or PhD degree. Core undergraduate classes include thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer, fluids, and reaction engineering.Applicants who hold an MS degree in Chemical Engineering from another institution are not eligible to apply to the U-M Chemical Engineering master’s program.
Candidates should emphasize any of their experiences or personal factors that they believe will lead to success in the PhD program and their research, including research experience, overcoming hardship, leadership, motivation, etc.
Non-research experience is considered in the application process.
We encourage candidates with research experience, as well as those with practical industrial experience to apply.
